Step:

  1. Bring 4 quarts of water to boil in a large pot.

  2. Add 1 tablespoon salt and macaroni and cook until nearly tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water until cool, then drain again, briefly, so that pasta is still moist.

  4. Transfer to a large bowl.

  5. Stir in bell pepper, celery, scallions, vinegar, hot sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper, and let sit until flavors are absorbed, about 2 minutes.

  6. Stir in mayonnaise and barbecue sauce and let sit until salad is no longer watery, about 5 minutes.

  7. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

  8. *The salad can be covered and refrigerated or up to 2 days. Check seasonings before serving.*

  9. **As the salad sits, it can become dry; just before serving, stir in a few tablespoons water to bring back its creamy texture.**
